Abstract: Anatomy is a key knowledge domain for medical and healthcare professionals; it is also a key part of the foundation of knowledge for students studying within the medical field. Due to limited resources, institutions are looking to modern technological solutions to augment the traditional classroom experience. However, the current resources available to educators fail to fully meet the needs of students, and a user-centered design is essential to maximize the effectiveness of the resource and facilitate a meaningful learning experience. The purpose of my thesis is to produce the proof of concept for an interactive application to supplement traditional anatomy education. This application leverages digital media technologies and theory and was informed by educational and cognitive theories with the goal of improving the learning experience of the user.
